Real World Procurement in the Emirates, CIPS MENA Conference Too!

We’ve mentioned a couple of times already the first of our BravoSolution Real World Procurement workshops this year in London on February 24th – it is titled Putting Suppliers at the Centre of your Organisation.

But we can now confirm the 2016 Real World Procurement Series in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, supported by Tejari, the BravoSolution joint venture in the region. Again, Guy Allen and I will each make two trips to the UAE, leading two workshops during each visit, one in Dubai, one in Abu Dhabi. We have exciting new venues this year two in both cities. Here is the whole programme of events for 2016.

The dates for my first visit are the 1st and 2nd of March. On the 1st, I will be in the Sofitel, The Palm at the Palm Jumeirah - East Cresent Road, Dubai (this looks like a pretty spectacular venue). The session runs from 4pm – 7pm, including a break for refreshments, and the topic is the same as the London session on the 24th, (Putting Suppliers at the Center of your Organization), except we have a bit more time in Dubai to get into the issues in more detail. You can book here for that.

Then on the following day (March 2nd) it is Abu Dhabi and the St Regis Abu Dhabi, Nations Towers, Corniche, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The session is New Approaches to Negotiation (you can book here). That is a topic we have delivered in London and Dubai and personally it is one of my favourites of all the Real World topics. I promise you will find it both interesting and thought-provoking! We look at the work of Nobel Prize winner Dr Daniel Kahneman and others in the field of behavioural psychology and economics, and how their work should make us think differently about negotiation.

Whilst we are on the Emirates theme, if you are in the region, you really should take a look at the CIPS (Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply) Middle East Conference and Supply Management Awards on April 26th / 27th at The Address, Dubai Marina.

It is already looking like a very good line-up of speakers, and the range and number of delegates expected makes this a not-to-be-missed event for the region. We’ll have more on the event to come, and we know about a couple of exciting speakers who are not formally announced yet (we’ll tell you soon)! It looks likely to be a really strong event; have a look at the details, and you can book your place here.
